Dear Representative,

I am writing to you today to ask you to please VOTE YES ON HB 609, which is scheduled for hearing in the Judiciary & Civil Jurisprudence Committee this Wednesday, March 8.

No citizen of Texas should be coerced into a medical procedure by their employer, and no business owner should be forced into unconstitutional employment practices by unelected bureaucrats.  Please vote YES on HB 609 to protect Texas businesses and their employees.

Thank you,

  1. Margaret Coleman

    I have emailed the Representatives that you had listed above and used the statement provided. I am praying!!! Thank you all for all you do!

  2. I called the Committee members today urging them to vote YES on HB 609. I just now emailed all of them using the “Dear Representative” letter provided. Praying they will do the RIGHT thing and VOTE YES

  3. We pray this is timely to impact decision-making: A vaccinated, four-year-old, autistic boy was brought by his grandmother to see Doctor Billingsley, D.C. for chiropractic evaluation & adjustments weekly. By week three the school therapists asked what was the grandmother( who brought her grandson to school ) doing because little “Tez” was beginning to speak in whole sentences. the teachers encouraged the grandmother to keep coming. In the ensuing weeks Tez was following his teachers’ instructions and asking to see “Doctor, Doctor” his Chiropractor. He also readily said “Thank you” and did his grandmother’s bidding. By the tenth visit/adjustment, his grandmother told us that TEZ had been accepted into the IDEA scjool’s Kindergarden for Fall 2023 and gave Doctor a letter of recommendation.
    The forgoing testimony is a classic example of a natural approach to health care that works to detox the body so it can heal itself as God intended. Submitted by Vera Billingsley, Chiropractic Assistant
